Named after the founder of Kentucky’s first commercial distillery, Evan Williams is the second largest selling Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey in the US and the world, and made with a time-honored recipe, distilled and then carefully aged for a smooth and rich taste. 'Bottled in bond' means that it is kept under government supervision and at a higher ABV, 50%. This concentrates the flavours and they are held together more tightly. A sweet nose leads with spice and ginger in the background. The palate is a bit ramped up, with black pepper spice hits and lingering vanilla caramel and citrus. The finish is big, dry and bold, but fades nicley. Great in an Old Fashioned.
